Achieving More by Doing Less – The Lean Approach to Success

While less is more is a popular statement, many people find that saying it is much easier than living and working in this manner. Achieving better sales, recruiting better talent, and being more effective as a leader requires doing less while focusing on always taking action on the next right thing.

Here are the three steps to create the space and focus needed to become a leaner and more proficient leader, salesperson, or recruiter:

  1. Identify which aspects of your job you…

The Choice Between Effective or Defective Leadership

A leader need not be brilliant to be effective. Efficient leaders always do three things:

  1. Set clear and reasonable expectations.
  2. Succinctly communicate what is expected.
  3. Unwaveringly hold people accountable to these expectations.

These three behaviors, consistently executed, are the hallmarks of a simply effective leader. The difference between these individuals and those just getting by is the development and utilization of these traits…

Megavitamins for Customer Relationships

The Verbal Vomit

It’s often said that salespeople should listen more than talk, however, those spouting this wisdom typically are the ones who continue to inundate those around them with voluminous amounts of words. In fact, most salespeople spew a stream of factoids, details, and feature-benefit chunks of information all over prospective clients.

No one likes to be thrown up on, and it’s certainly no way to start or grow an important relationship. Instead, our industry must adhere…

Retired and Enjoying Life (except on LinkedIn)

As part of my never-ending battle with fake LinkedIn profiles, I noticed that during the overnight, "Eng.Yusif Ibrahim" reached out to connect. Fabulous.

According to his profile, Mr. Ibrahim is "Retired" and in Libya, having worked in "Government Administration."

Since this profile smelled like a pile of rotting fish, I image searched this fellow; nothing of note came up on the first page,…

Drinking The Sand

From The American President:

People want leadership, Mr. President, and in the absence of genuine leadership, they’ll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership. They’re so thirsty for it they’ll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there’s no water, they’ll drink the sand.  ~Lewis Rothschild

Lewis, we’ve had presidents who…

B2B vs B2C Sales Recruiting: What are the differences?

source: FreeDigitalPhotos.net

When recruiting for sales positions, many may feel all sales jobs are similar. This is fairly far from the truth, however, as business to business sales (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) sales are each distinctive. While sales careers often offer the advantage of mobility within one’s career, experts agree it can be difficult to change types of sales careers.

What are the Major Differences between B2B and B2C?

Empathetic Innovation

Staffing and recruitment firms who are achieving the fastest growth in margin percentage and dollars are taking their cues from some of the best at innovation: Starbucks, Airbnb, Warby Parker, Patagonia, Kickstarter, and Apple. Instead of bombarding tons of prospects with mundane sales and marketing pitches, hoping to get them to care about their offerings, they are figuring out what matters most to these buyers, then delighting them, one person at a time. This approach,…

Engineer Recruiting Became Even More Difficult in 2014

On the back of a stellar jobs report unveiled last Friday, I was asked by a reporter for Hearst Publications to take a look at our data for engineering job advertisements in the final quarter of 2014 and to compare them to the final quarter of 2013.

Across the board, every engineering discipline saw a marked increase in the number of jobs advertised on any given day in the final quarter of 2014 vs 2013.  What makes this particularly insightful for this year's recruiting - the…

The Tesla Approach to Staffing and Recruiting

Car fanatic or not, there is a lot to like about a Teslaand how this electric vehicle is a model for better business. Acceleration from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds, which the Model S can now achieve, is the kind of rapid velocity staffing and recruitment customers can experience when firms shift from reactive to active recruiting.
